Oh, Fudge!

This is our family favorite, easy-peasy fudge recipe.

2/3 cup evaporated milk
2 Tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
14 large marshmallows
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 c. chopped pecans (optional)

1. Coat an 8x8 inch pan with cooking spray.

2. Stir together sugar, evaporated milk, salt and butter. Bring to a boil in a sauce pan, reduce heat to medium-low and cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly.

3. Stir in chocolate, marshmallows and nuts. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Stir until smooth.

4. Pour into pan and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. Leave in fridge or freezer for a firmer consistency.
